Hi.

 

I have an HP laptop running windows 7, it's about 5 years old, should Windows 10 run ok on it or will I have problems?

 

Forgot to mention 4 gig memory.

Hi again Zone out :)

You can use the compatibility checker from the "Get Windows 10" app (it's called "Check your PC") to see if your laptop meets the requirements to run Windows 10, software and drivers wise. As for the requirements to run the system itself, you can find them in the link below.
